    Funny ... I thought Obama was the peace candidate. Sorry your guy isn't turning out like you expected Cindy.

    Hondo, Cindy Sheehan ran against Nancy Pelosi last fall. What on earth makes you think she'd be a fan of Obama and the Democrats? She probably voted for Cynthia McKinney in November.

    Politics?

    Same nine words could apply to the guy who starts countless threads about Cindy Sheehan.

    I sure do love unintentional irony out of people who think irony is something to do to a wrinkled shirt.

    Isn't the fact that she's protesting Obama prove she's not about politics? It says she's anti-war no matter if it's a Republican or Democrat in office.

    Or are you simply mocking a mother who lost a son in combat because the war isn't ending as quickly as she likes?

    Not mocking anyone at all. Besides, she's the only one in her family trading on the memory of her son for her political purposes. The rest of them would just as soon she shut up.

    Or at least support the war, right?

    Like a good non-commie liberal bastard.

    But you say you're not mocking anyone. Unless, you're genuinely expressing sympathy that Obama has let down Cindy Sheehan.

    I am not tired of hearing from a mother who lost her son in a war.

    I am tired of hearing from a woman who has sought fame/celelbrity status/notoriety from the fact that her son is dead.

    There is a difference here and Cindy Sheehan is far closer to the second person than the first...
